What is Nurse-Family Partnership?
Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a community health program that helps transform the lives
of women who are pregnant with their first child. Each mother we serve is partnered with a
registered nurse (RN) early in her pregnancy and receives ongoing nurse home visits throughout
pregnancy that continues through her child's second birthday.
How much does the program cost?
Participation in NFP is voluntary and is FREE to all eligible women.
Who can enroll?
Any woman who is:
- Pregnant with her first child
- Meets income requirements
- You can join as early in your pregnancy as you like,
but you must join before the 28th week of pregnancy
NFP will help you:
- Learn more about pregnancy and childbirth
- Prepare for the arrival of your newborn
- Teach you about your baby's growth and development
- Help you to become a better parent
- Build a strong network for yourself and baby. Including, community support services
Can my baby's father participate too?
NFP encourages fathers, partners, family members and even friends to be involved
in the visits and learn how they can best support you and your baby.
You and your nurse can decide together who gets involved.
